Hallo to you all

I write you to ask some little advice.

I've recently begun collecting an oop Ork army for Warhammer 40.000 (I still plyay 2ed).

It is pretty simple, nowadays, finding the old Orks minis on eBay at reasonable prices, we all know how massively the Orks "fashun" changed in the last fifteen years.

The problem is, while finding old Ork metal bodies is simple, finding the plastic arms GW supplied with them is a real pain. At the moment there are one full sprue and two half sprues on eBay at the prices of 15 and 10 £!!!

Using the new Orks arms is not an option, as a single "modern" Ork arm is nearly as big as a whole "vintage" Ork.

Have you got some idea about a good alternative set of arms with a good size for the old GW Orks models?

Thanks!

I have the same problem : /

Depending of the models, the most "garmented" can use some Catachan amrs, the most nudes ones can use Beastmen, if you cut off the fur ; maybe one alternative shop produce some goods arms, don't know...

I have seen Kromlech design makes some nice stuff, do you think it is in scale with old school minis??

I have bunch of Kromlech stuff and they are mostly in scale with the current Ork line. I think the arms are not quite as muscular as the GW ones, but still too big for the classic Orks IMO.
